Jill Severn & Medley, eventing in 2006

Medley

(18/10/98)16hh thoroughbred x warmblood.  Medley and Jill had great success eventing up to 2* together in her younger years.  Medley is a wonderfully kind and generous school horse and the favourite of many.  She has taught countless riders how to canter and jump, and is still out competing and going strong with her part-lessee Gail.


Charon

(1/8/2005) 15.3hh lusitano.  Charon has big, beautiful paces; he lives up to the Portuguese war horse’s characteristics of being intelligent and highly willing.  Charon has a sensational work ethic. He is a master at teaching his students about collection and contact, and offers an elevated forward ride, which once collected, allows for a smooth and glorious cantering experience.

Annie

(1/8/1994) 15.1hh Thoroughbred x Australian Stock Horse. Annie is well schooled on the flat, uncomplicated and generous.  She is one of our all time favourite confidence-boosting rides for beginners.


Monte

(21/9/2004) 16.1hh warmblood x quarter horse.  Monte is one of our taller horses, but one of the favourites with our smallest riders.  He has soft gentle rocking horse paces that make learning to sit trot and canter look and feel easy.

Monte has successfully evented up to prelim (95cm) and is now part leased to Caroline who prefers to trail ride and work on dressage.

Georgi is strong and tough, and very affectionate. She offers a forward going, energetic ride with a big canter.


Zippy Zac

(6/9/12) 16.1hh thoroughbred.  One of the youngest in the herd, Zippy retired from his racing career in June 2017.  Chosen for his kind and quiet disposition and uphill conformation, he is being patiently retrained as Lauren’s eventing competition horse.

Magic (aka “Brave Heart”)

(10/9/05) 16.2hh thoroughbred.  Lauren took on Magic in 2012 when he retired as a racehorse.  He has a divine temperament and endless desire to please his rider. Magic competed under the name “Brave Heart” with Lauren at 2* eventing and 1.20m showjumping until 2018.  Now retiring to a slightly less demanding career, in 2019 Magic will continue to train and compete with his lessees, Pascale and Jennie.

Racing in regional Queensland under the name Jorja’s Jet until September 2017, Awesome George then found a new career as a school horse, where he showed his forte is not in racing, but as a quiet, obedient and gentle teacher to riders of all levels. George is uncomplicated, and very willing. He just wants to please.

Zoffy

(27/9/94) 16.1 thoroughbred.  Zoffy was bred as a racehorse, then found his forte as a very successful, brave 2* eventer with his owner Elissa, for many years.  Now in his more senior years, Zoffy has been retired from eventing and lives a simpler life as a school horse.  He is uncomplicated and exceptionally obliging.  A real pleaser!
